Snape's Snake Game

This game is based on the popular Muggle game 'minesweeper'.

Forty Slytherin snakes are hidden in the grid below.

Try to uncover all the squares (by clicking on them) without revealing a snake. A number on an uncovered square indicates how many snakes it is touching.

(New users, please see very important notes at the bottom of this page!)

I usually experience initial problems playing this game and have to reload the page 2 or 3 times before it runs properly.
So if you are having problems, hit 'refresh' a few times and make sure that EVERYTHING downloads before you start playing the game.

If you achieve a top score, and your name is already registered with a higher score, then your original higher score will be retained.
Because the speed of this game varies depending on your set-up, mean people who alter their name slightly each time in order to push everybody else off the scoreboard may find that Snape wreaks his revenge by removing THEM!

AOL users who cannot see the images on here will need to disable the (bloody stupid!) automatic image compression feature on their browser! See here for a step-by-step guide for doing this (and thanks to Professor Moonstar for her assistance in the delicate testing procedure!)

This particular code didn't work completely before being Slytherin-ised (the original game doesn't stop when you win!) But it's very cool nonetheless - see http://javascript.internet.com/games/minesweeper.html
